Unlikeable Women [Piper Lane]
This class title has been updated from the print catalog.
Introductory/Intermediate | Throughout literature and film, women have been portrayed as either the witch or the angel, the whore or the virgin, whereas men have been given the freedom to be complex, disagreeable heroes and villains. In this course, we’ll examine how to portray female (and nonbinary) characters as nuanced, complicated, tough, and tender — with agency over their own stories. Reading will include works from Toni Morrison, Claire Vaye Watkins, Madeline ffitch, and Carmen Maria Machado.
